Breast Cancer Awareness Walk
sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta

Thursday, October 9, 2014

This year's walk raised over $1200.00 that will benefit breast cancer education and prevention programs supported by the Susan Komen foundation through United Way! Thank you to all participants, supporters, vendors and of course our organizaers. Great job!!! By the way...

We want to thank you very much for your participation in the 5th annual Walk for Breast Cancer at Duquesne University sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority to benefit cancer research through the Susan G. Komen Foundation through Duquesne's United Way efforts. We hope you enjoyed the walk, raffles and vendors that were on hand and contributed to "The Walk."
Our Miche vendor, Denise Sciulli, was on site gifting our survivors and those currently fighting the battle with a Miche interchangeable handbag and Hope shell that was inspired by cancer survivors. In addition, she also pledged to donate her net profits through Friday, 10/17 to the Walk for Breast Cancer and is raffling a Prima (large bag) with a Hope shell (value $75). Entries for the raffle are $5 each. See picture of the raffle gift above. All proceeds from the raffle will also be donated to "The Walk."
If you would like to take a chance on the raffle, stop in to see Amy Montgomery in Room 315, Union, Office of Greek Life, or Denise Sciulli in Room 503 Admin Building.
If you are interested in purchasing any Miche products, with proceeds benefitting the Walk, visit www.denisesciulli.miche.com and click SHOP next to DU - Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Theta Chapter - Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Fundraiser (however, if you are on campus, call or email Denise to save on shipping rather than placing it through the website) through 10/17.

Alpha Gamma Delta-Alpha Omega chapter recognized nationally with two awards regarding recruitment practices!

Alpha Gamma Delta's International Convention recently took place in Indianapolis July 8-July 12, 2014. International Convention is an exciting event for Alpha Gamma Delta, as this is a time when representatives from every collegiate chapter gather together to celebrate the accomplishments of the sorority over the past two years (biennium). This is also a time that the AGD honors collegiate chapters for the outstanding work that they have done on campus and in their communities over the past two years.

We are excited to share with you that our Alpha Omega Chapter at Duquesne University was awarded the Recruitment Excellence Award and the Recruitment Progress Award at International Convention. The Recruitment Excellence Award is presented to the collegiate chapters that have demonstrated excellence in all areas of recruitment over the past two years. The Recruitment Progress Award is presented to the collegiate chapters that have demonstrated a commitment to improving their recruitment and retention efforts throughout the biennium.

Just one more example of how Going Greek impacts your life and those in the community in a positive way!

This is a heartwarming article sent to us by Kristen Himes, a Delta Zeta alumna of Duquesne who is now persuing her Graduate degree at George Washington University. She said this is how she feels about her experience with Greek Life at Duquesne, and is so proud to be part of the greater network. Keeping doing what you do!
